15 An oracle of Moab:
Because Ar is devastated in a night, Moab is destroyed;
because Kir of Moab is devastated in a night, it is destroyed.
2 It has gone up to the house,a
and Dibon to the high places
for weeping over Nebo,
and Moab wails over Medeba.
⌊Every head is bald⌋,b
every beard is shaved.
on its roofs and public squares everyone wails,
going down in weeping.
4 And Heshbon and Elealeh cryc out,
their voice is heard as far as Jahaz;
therefore the armed ones of Moab cry out;
its soul quiversd for him.
its fugitives flee up to Zoar,
For at the ascent of Luhith it goes up it with weeping;
for on the road of Horonaim they raise up a cry of destruction.
for the grass has withered,
the vegetation has vanished,
there is no greenness.
and their store of goods over the river of the poplars.
her wailing is heard as far as Eglaim,
and her wailing as far as Beer Elim.
9 For the waters of Dimone are full of blood;
but I will place added things upon Dimon:
a lion for the survivorsf of Moab
and for the remnant of the land.
